Just got this from Andertons last week wanting to try out a shortscale.
Long story short: I love it! Makes me wonder why I never tried a Mustang and/or a shortscale before.
Alas I'm now regretting not going for a US version from the start as I'm not really seeing any use for the added jazz pickup in the music I make
and I'm probably gonna want to upgrade to a JMJ mustang anyway as I love the way that one sounds and looks just a tad better than this one,
but I can't trade it in anymore as this was already an exchange for some other gear I bought, hence this feeler.
I've already put a fresh set of La Bella 760FL-S Deep Talkin Bass strings on them (43£) as they come recomended as the best strings for this type of bass
and will also include the original rounds it came with.
I still have all the original packaging (Both Fender & Andertons box) and the allen keys and other goodies it came with.
Bass was only tested a couple of hours in my livingroom and she's less than a week old, so it's absolutely mint!
New these go for 599£, the Labella's were another 43£ and the Mustang PJ in this colour is currently sold out in most places,
so grab yourself a bargain and get this brand new bass for 100£ less.
Only trades I'm interested in is a JMJ mustang and maybe a Chowny SWB pro or other 32" scale bass as I'm curious about trying one of these as well now..
Six string bass tuned E:e so like a FenderVI. Very nicely made, active electronics, string through, 30” scale. Lovely tone with strong fundamental from EMG pickups and three band EQ. Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.
Price drop, Was £875 now £840!!!!!!!!
This bass has a great low action and the neck is smooth and fast and just had a fresh waxing with Warwick wax.
Body of the bass has some mojo but has been given a good polish, a number of small dints here and there but still in good condition (see photos).
Frets have near zero wear.
Pickups are MEC in the neck and a Delano MM in the bridge, the two switches are one for the sims blue led's and the other is a 3 way switch is for the MM pickup when the switch is in the up position the bridge pick-up is humbucking and routed in series. When the switch is in the middle position the bridge pick-up is single coil and routed as humcanceling with the neck pick-up. When the switch is in the down position the bridge pick-up is humbucking and routed in parallel parallel, series, split i believe.
Electronics: Seymour Duncan Basslines preamp. Push/Pull Volume/Pickup Pan Control (Part #M89252 -2 x 220K, 500K)* Treble Tone Control (Part #M85100 - 100K) Mid Tone Control (Part #M85100 - 100K) Bass Tone Control (Part #M85100 - 100K).
By pulling on the volume knob you will activate the slap contour EQ curve on the Seymour Duncan Basslines preamp. This curve will boost the bass frequencies and the high fre-quencies, while slightly cutting the mid frequencies. Pulling the knob does not deactivate the active preamp. The Seymour Duncan preamp is considered better than the more common MEC electronics.
Sims LED's are fitted and are bright blue and really do go well with the colour of the bass.
Body is swamp ash with a generous slab of flamed maple top.

Slappers, jazzers and metalheads delight (and everything in between!).
